Turkey Burgers

In an effort to eat a little better I cooked turkey burgers tonight. And I'll tell you what, they're not that bad at all. Not a 80/20 burger but pretty damn good!!

I started off with 2.5lbs of ground turkey. I mixed in two eggs, 1 small diced zuchini, 1/2 red onion diced, garlic, 3 TBS Italian Bread Crumbs, fresh pepper, kosher salt and a couple splashes of Robusto Italian Dressing.

Looks great Larry. I just did salmon burgers yesterday for that newspaper story. I'll post the recipe when it comes out in the paper.

"Not my bag"? "I ain't gonna make 'em"? blah blah blah! You people baffle me! You eat roast turkey, fried turkey, smoked turkey, turkey salad, etc, but when someone forms them into a phucking patty and grills them all of a sudden you don't like turkey. WTF

I'm telling you I wasn't a huge fan of the turkey burgers I've had in the past either. But a guy at work kept raving about his turkey burgers and told me how he made them. So I did them close to how he described, but I added the Robusto dressing in with them and I'm telling you what they're very good. Not a beef burger but a nice low fat, low cholesteral alternative.

I agree 100% But if it's your thing, go for it.

Larry, I'm sure homemade will beat store bought anytime. I'd make and eat them! I just picked up from Trader Joe's the other day, " Chicken, Chilie Lime Burgers" because they sounded so good. They were fantastic! Now comes the problem of figuring out how to make them myself and have the same flavor!

That's my point you baffoon! These did not have the consistency of rubber! The zuchini and onion added nice texture and moisture. Mushrooms are going into them next time.

I wondered when the turkey burger name calling would start.

Not that you want yet another negative on your turkey burgers Larry, but I'm gonna have to vote against them too.

Although the ones you made look good enough to make someone want to try them again just to be sure it wasn't the way they were cooked last time.

I think my problem is that I HATE a well done beef burger.....so a turkey burger isn't far off with it's texture (no matter what you add inside with it).....and add the lack off blood running down your wrist when you eat it....nope just won't work.

BUT.......the ones you made sure looked good....if I was dieting I'd probably be all over em!

Instead of mushrooms going in them it should be the trash can, cause that's where turkey burgers belong!
